Health Risks from Consumption of Great Lakes Fish

This research grant seeks to continue and expand mercury exposure   research supported by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease   Registry (ATSDR) Great Lakes Human Health Effects Research Program.   This research effort will provide additional information needed   regarding mercury exposure and possible health risks to women of   childbearing age living in the Great Lakes Basin. This is important   because the developing human fetus is known to be particularly   susceptible to the neurotoxic effects of methylmercury, the primary   form of mercury present in sport-caught and purchased fish.    (methylmercury); (mercury); (toxic metal); (toxic metals);   (chemicals of concern); (chemical of concern); (human health); (fish   consumption); (restrictions on fish consumption)
